Fifield Church

Fifield Church in Oxfordshire has various churches for different religious faiths such as Anglican, Baptist and Methodist. It is common for a town to have more than one church and Fifield is no exception.

Alas church attendance has been falling for the last 50 years in the United Kingdom, with 15% of the populace attending at least once per month, however Atheists and Agnostics are still in a minority, representing 33% of the population.

We think the basis for the decline is just that people do not believe in God any more, with violence raging across the planet and the economy in a bad way it is easy to appreciate peoples lack of faith. In our judgment the Church needs to be re-branded, if you think of the fundamental values of Church such as togetherness, family, marriage and community leaving aside God for a second! If you contemplate on all the good things that Churches stand for in our Fifield community then it is really extraordinary figures are going down. Surely we all want our Fifield to be a good spot to inhabit, where people get along, they help each other in times of need and people offer to each other without asking anything back in return. So what we are asking is for you to go along to your Fifield church and pressure for change, you want to assist, and you think it's only right and proper that the rest of your neighborhood chip in and help with things. The UK is on its knees because hardly a soul wishes to work to a better goal...it is time for change...come on people..let's get organized and make this happen

Churches in the past and future have worked together with other organisations such as neighborhood schools, groups such as the beavers, cubs and scouts as well as being prominent in assisting other groups of inhabitants such as the lonely, humble and abused. The church is seen as doing good causes which sees them in a good light.

Churches have been seen in a dim light of late with the pope resigning, the first pope to do so in more than 600 years, and nobody was entirely sure of the reason why, various people have speculated that it is not just a matter of the pope getting older and not being able to carry out his job to the fullest.

The scottish Cardinal Keith O'Brien in recent times resigned after admitting sexually inappropriate moves to young men training to be priests, taking into consideration his anti-gay words in bygone times, this was seen as "do as I say not as I do"!

On the lighter side of things churches are seen as a very peaceful place to be - a good place to contemplate on the things that are happening in your life at the present moment.

A game we used to play as children was to find the oldest gravestone..i.e. the earliest date, that's a game that can keep children smiling for a while as well as giving them good exercise as they walk/run round the cemetery.
